  • I definitely had the "flutter" with my son. It felt like something tickling around ever so slightly inside my lower abdomen. It was very subtle, but I knew it was baby in there.

  • I didnt realize it was the baby till much later about 20-25 weeks. by then i could tell it was a kick. now i am on my second preg an i am a little over 17 weks and i can feel the baby. i know its the baby because of the first time and it feels like a little flutter. when people described this feeling to me the first preg. i didnt quite know what to expect, chances are your feeling your baby

  • I started to feel the baby around that time. I'm now 22 weeks, but to me when i first started feeling it, It felt like i had gas moving around in my lower belly.

  • at first at 16 weeks i felt like i had butterflies in my belly for at least about a few more weeks but after 27 weeks i felt full blown kicks punches rolls and everything else, now at 36 weeks my son is acting as if he wants to kick his way out

  • It feels a lot like gas lol. It's a flutter. The movements get stronger. It's really cool. Sometimes it can be hurtful. Depending on where the baby is.
